Adults need some playtime too — more so in fact to combat the daily stresses of work and home life. If you’re in Singapore and ready to play, prepare yourself for Sentosa Island’s Adult Playground, happening sometime this 2016.
What’s Adult Playground All About
The first Adult Playground event took place last 2014 at Siloso Beach. It was the first and most massive adult playground anywhere in the world. The groundbreaking and event featured more than 22 exciting and untraditional sporting games, the country’s culinary greats, and musical performances by The Sam Willows, Jack and Rai, and many others.
Highlights of the last Adult Playground included Bubble Soccer, where participants outfitted in inflatable, squishy donuts fought each other head-on, Archery Tag, a paintball slash dodgeball game with elements of archery, and the Human Foosball — foosball with real, human players! There was also the Mega Bounce, a trampoline-assisted bungee that enabled brave souls to leap up to 20 feet in the air, Gladiator, where participants got to joust safely (minus the bloodshed), and Dunk Tank — hit the target to dunk your opponent.
Other Things to Know About Adult Playground
If you want to save some cash, early bird tickets will be available roughly three months on the 2016 schedule, which is slated to be around the last quarter of the year. Tickets cover all playground activities, which will be open from 9am to 7pm, with music playing the whole day. You have to be 22 years old and above to enter the playground since alcohol will be available. You’re also not permitted to bring in drinks and food.
If you’re worried that you’re not as physically fit as the other adults who’ll be participating — don’t. The activities are all done in the spirit of fun and camaraderie so you won’t have to train yourself just to participate in the festivities. And, as all outdoor Singapore events go, expect the sun to shine full force, but prepare for rain as well — slather on sunscreen, bring your swimming essentials, a change of clothes, and don’t forget to bring your game face on!
